Mission

Homes for Homes is a non-profit organization that funds the housing needs of the poor and oppressed in impoverished countries. The core value of our ministry comes from James 1:27 which challenges us to care for widows and orphans in their distress. By providing a home, we are working to intersect the lives of the hopeless with a home, hope, compassion and the gospel.

It is our deepest desire to provide a home for families that improves their quality of life. A home is the center of a family's heartbeart - the place where they love and grow as a family. Homes for Homes works to sustain families so their bonds of love, strength and unity grow. By giving them a healthier environment, we are improving the future for their children. By relieving the pressure of paying for a home, we are hoping to ease the burden of parents and give them a place of their own. This gift is a place to bring hope to their family and build the futures of their children.

We have identified ministry partners in each of our communities that facilitate home construction. Local pastors select the most needy families in their communities to receive homes. Then these families are vetted and land ownership is determined. Local laborers are hired to construct the homes using local materials to stimulate the economy. This allows families to receive a home with a concrete floor and solid roof.

We currently have systems in place to build homes for families in Uganda, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala. The need in these areas are measurable and significant. We have consistent workers to build the houses and pastors to select the families.

We measure progress by the number of homes completed and families impacted. Progress is also measured by the improvements seen in each of the communities served.

To date, over 120 families have received a home. We hope to provide at least 50 families per year with homes.
